Anyway, I know you've all been waiting so let's get on with it.
I went back and posted all the answers to the "quiz". CONGRATULATIONS to Sharon, Dya, Meg99, Taya, and Shannon for getting all the answers right! (They definately were not easy).
Since there were 5 names I put each name on a piece of paper and had my adorable 7 year old son pick one from a bowl.
The winner is TAYA! Email me all your info. so I can send you your prize!
FYI- I'm going to be out of town for the next week. I'll try to post, but I'm not making any promises. ;o) However when I get back I will post all kinds of new and fun stuff. Have a good week!

I bought a TON of wool (for felt food), put it on a shelf, and there it sits. Not right now.
I've been drawing- A LOT! And that's all I'm going to say about that.
I've been posting- but not here. Where you might ask? You'll have to wait until Saturday!
I'm still here, just working.

I am not the type that can just 'not eat'. I love food WAY too much. Besides, my grouchyness goes way up when I'm hungry. So I asked my sis-in-law (a nurse) what I can do to loose 10 lbs fast. She suggested NO CARBS!!! I laugh at people who don't eat carbs. How can I do this? Of course she said that it's not good for your body long-term but that it could aid in the process to shed a little unwanted lbs. Well, I'm trying. but I'm not doing no carbs- more like LOW CARBS.
For example: tonight for dinner i had 1/2 a dinner roll instead of 3 whole dinner rolls. That was hard. and while my family ate spaghetti, I chowed on shredded zucchini with spaghetti sauce (Very yummy if you haven't tried it).
The problem I'm having is that I don't LOVE many vegetables and GOOD fruit (the kind that actually tastes like it's supossed to) is hard to find in these parts. Oh how I miss living in California and eating a peach that tastes like a peach.
OK. I'll get to the reason why I'm sharing all this with you. I NEED HELP! Does anyone have any good meal/snack ideas that don't involve a TON of carbs? I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas. PLEASE!
p.s.- I'm working on my FIRST tutorial! Woohoo! Hopefully it's ready to post by monday. So I'm not taking a break from quilting completely- just working on the technical side of a quilting blog. :o)

I may have mentioned the horrible event that happened to me at Market- but let me remind you again. As soon as I saw clips of this fabric line I had an idea for a pattern in minutes! I was so excited about it. That was until I walked down to the Moda booths and saw a quilt done out of 'Eva' in such a similar pattern it would have been ridiculous for me to design mine. Now, as far as patterns go, they had a similar theme but weren't really the same. The reason why it was impossible for me to design mine is because they were out of the same fabric. Really, it would have been silly.
So I've sulked about it for 2 months. Literally. Until one day it came to me and I am ecstatic about the results! Introducing:
It's not the greatest pic. (I hate it when that happens!) The rich purples, luscious burgundy mixed with lighter pinks complimented with a completely contrasting electric green! It's brilliant and beautiful. But don't worry. If this color palate doesn't strike your fancy- imagine how cute it would be in festive holiday prints all wrapped up like packages!

See what I mean!? The coolest thing is that Fine Print is totally fat quarter friendlt, and Out of Time is a layer cake pattern. Of course, you can always use any fabric of your choice. But why would you when there's 'AUTHENTIC'!?
